A panel discussion was held about the trial and execution of Saddam Hussein. Panelists were all involved in the trial in some capacity. Topics included the fairness of the procedures employed, the appropriateness of a national rather than international forum, and the eventual development of a national trial with a strong international influence. Also discussed were the differences between the Western and Iraqi legal traditions, the attitude of the Iraqi people toward the trial, and the conduct of the executions. Several of the panelists helped to train the judges and prosecutors, and they spoke about their experiences. A short video interview with Iraqi Ambassador to the U.S. Samir Sumaida’ie was shown. Following the discussion panelists answered questions from members of the audience. close
